Water main work to close parts of Forest Hill Avenue

Work will start on February 2nd and wrap up two to three months later.

I’m developing a new theory that Forest Hill Avenue is actually used as a training ground for every type of infrastructure maintenance. It seems every time one project wraps up a new one begins. So I believe that Richmond is importing students from all over the world just so they can practice on one of our main thoroughfares.

The latest training exercise involves water main work and the closing of various eastbound shoulder lanes for the next two to three months.

Details for Council Member Kathy Graziano’s office.

The water main work to be performed on Forest Hill Ave. will consist of closing the shoulder lane eastbound @ Woodberry Lane for approx. 3-5 days. Then move to Norcross rd. (same), then Heartwood Rd. (same). The remaining intersections (Windsorview Dr, Rettig Rd, Glyndon Ln, and the main that feeds the shopping @ Melbourne Dr.) will consist of closing one lane at a time to cross Forest Hill Ave.

This will affect both eastbound & westbound traffic while the crossing is performed. Each intersection will take approx.10-15 days. All signs will conform with V.D.O.T. specifications as jobs done on State Projects. Police will be on site to assist in traffic control.

This work will begin Feb. 2, 2015 and will be done during normal business hours (9am-4pm) weather permitting, and will take approx. 2-3 mo. To complete this stage of the project. The gas project will follow.
